Pours black with a nice khaki head, the aroma is a little malty, a bit roasted coffee and hoppy on the back end. I didn't think I was going to like this brew because I'm usually not a fan of hoppy stouts or porters but the brewmaster that brewed this beer defintely knew what he or she was doing. This beer has the roasted coffee taste and maltiness of a stout or porter but it has the hop presence and slight bitterness of an IPA and none of it is overdone, the balance is just right. This beer also has a smooth mouthfeel. I haven't had many brews from Firestone that werent done well and this one is no different.
RATING 9 out of 10
